Japan has introduced all sorts of measures to stimulate its economy and equities markets, including negative interest rates. We have seen products like ETFs come to market to entice Government Pension Investment Funds (GPIFs) to participate in equities and updates to trading platforms; are they having the desired effects?

The Japan Eco-System 100 Days After; Has it Changed?
2016 has seen significant technology upgrades. JPX introduced their 10Gb network and an upgraded OSE J-Gate derivatives matching engine. Continued data center consolidations saw OSE move its co-location presence into the JPX co-location center; TOCOM is expected to migrate their matching engine onto J-Gate in September.
The changes motivated a lot of market participants to upgrade trading and communications infrastructure. New customers (some old ones that went away for a while) also took this opportunity to (re)enter the market.
